The first trailer for the next installment of the Paranormal Activity series has found its way online. This is the sixth movie in the franchise overall.
The latest is titled Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, and it follows a family who discovers a box of old home movies on video tape of the original family from 20 years earlier, which of course leads to some strange, unexplainable events unfolding in their own lives.

The new Paranormal Activity 4 trailer quickly establishes that there is a connection between it and Paranormal Activity 2. It all begins with a home surveillance camera capturing a very familiar possessed woman snatching a boy and then walking off into the darkness. The trailer than flash forwards to last year, where we are introduced to a new family, and the evil spirits that haunt their chandeliers, Skype, and Xbox Kinect.

Henry Joose and Ariel Schulman return to direct the third sequel to the Paranormal Activity franchise. Whether or not the film involves Katie and Hunter remains a mystery, but the trailer certainly implies that there is a connection between the two.
Just when you thought the found footage style would have overstayed its welcome, it finds a creepy way to stay in theaters. Up to now, we had no idea what the plot was for Paranormal Activity 4, but a new trailer give us an idea as to what it could be.
The previous three Paranormal Activity films have always found creative ways to present the found footage shooting style, by utilizing various forms of camera technology. We’ve seen hidden cameras, security cameras, and handheld camcorders. But for Paranormal Activity 4, directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Catfish) have found a way to use the found footage technique using modern technology.
Paranormal Activity 2 Directed by Tod Williams
Starring Sprague Grayden, Katie Featherston, Brian Boland, Molly Ephram, Micah Sloat
Release date: October 22, 2010Â
It should be noted that a majority of this review was typed on a smartphone while sitting in the theater waiting for something to happen. Okay not really, but it could have been done that way given the amount of down time viewers have between scary parts of Paranormal Activity 2.
It came as no surprise that after the original ultra-low budget original film made millions worldwide that Hollywood would try to capture lightning in a bottle a second time with a sequel. While others have done the same before with weak results (Blair Witch anyone?), it’s likely Paranormal Activity 2 will get the same reaction as the first… because it IS the same as the first.
The first important detail the previews left out is that this sequel is, for 97% of the film, a prequel to the original film. Set roughly two months prior to the events of the first film, Paranormal Activity 2 follows the Rey family, a married couple with two children, including newborn Hunter. After finding their home in disarray from what they believe to be a break-in, they have several security cameras installed. The film combines the footage from these cameras and a single hand-held camera that switches hands at several points.
